My goal with the site is to learn about, write about, and talk fantasy baseball with people. But the site costs money to operate and host on the web. I’m buying books to further educate myself. I purchase software to edit videos. Not to mention I have two young daughters that I hope to send to college one day!
So I’m also going to try to make a little money while doing this.
While I do hope to make money, I promise to only promote products that I believe in. The links on this site will direct you to fantasy baseball resources that I use and believe make me more knowledgeable about baseball and also make me a better fantasy baseball player OR to fantasy contests that I play in personally. There may be links on this site that will lead you to a product or service that I will receive compensation for if you were to purchase the product or service. If this is the case and it’s not already clear, I will tell you in text near the link.
The truth is that there are affiliate links all over the web, but I choose to be up front and honest about the links that I provide.
You know all those links you see on Twitter or offers to deposit money at a daily fantasy site and get a free draft guide? Or those radio ads you hear telling you to deposit money at a daily site using a certain offer code? Those are great examples of affiliate links or affiliate promotions. If you sign up for a daily fantasy account using one of those links, the site you started at gets a cut of your first deposit.
Is that a bad thing? No, not necessarily. But the point is that a lot of sites don’t share the fact that they have a financial interest in you clicking on their affiliate links. I have nothing to hide. I share information in good faith.
I will never promote or link to a product that I don’t believe will provide high value to you.
I will never promote or link to a product, service, or contest that I don’t use myself.
Keep in mind that any compensation I receive from you purchasing a product has no extra cost to you.
If you were to go directly to a product page that I link to, without using a link from Smart Fantasy Baseball, you will see the same price.
For example, I may link to a book on Amazon.com, for which I am an affiliate. If you click through the link you might see it costs $19.99. If you then pull out your iPad and go to Amazon directly (not using a link from this site) and search for the same book, you’ll see it’s also $19.99.
If you find my site beneficial and you wish to purchase a product, please use a link from this site as a way to say thank you.
